The venue in Detling, near Maidstone, is handy for the Port of Dover terminal and buyers from France, Belgium and the Netherlands are regulars here, some of whom also take stands at the event.

The first of the five annual events here in 2020 is running this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, January 11-12.

B2B’s director Helen Martin said: “Our inside bookings are holding up well for this fair and are the same as last year at 200. Outside stands – ‘weather watch’ bookings – come in at the last moment, but are usually around 50.”
